Polarized Light EX 3: Challenge III

Mission and Clear Conditions:


Capture Command Post 


Secret objective: Discover and Retrieve Hostage

Clear Guide:

Team Recommendations: 

  •  1 Combat Echelon
    • Endgame AR/SMG to fight M16. Be prepared to micro. 
  • Alternatively: 1 Dummy echelon

Clear Steps

The straight forwards solution to this map is to run around, activating all consoles not near your Command Post, and then battle M16 on the Command Post. I need to do some additional testing and messing about to determine the secret objective, so please keep an eye out for updates.
